Speyburn Hopkins Reserve

Speyburn Hopkins Reserve Bottling Note

Hopkins Reserve from Speyburn was created as a tribute to John Hopkins, founder of the distillery. The single malt was aged in American oak bourbon casks which had also previously held peated whisky, imparting a subtle smokiness. The whisky endeavours to celebrate all things Speyside, and has been made using fresh spring water from the Granty Burn. The one litre bottle was released for the Travel Retail market.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Very subtle aromas of peat smoke tease out candied citrus fruit, with sweet butterscotch, vanilla and baking spice.

Palate: Fruity and sweet, with crisp toffee apple, cereal notes and lemon peel underpinned by a gentle smokiness.

Finish: Citrus zest and subtle hints of spice linger on the finish.

Speyburn Hopkins Reserve Reviews

So good, I bought it twice

Surprised how good this was, to be honest. A litre of 46%, non-chillfiltered speyside for under £35 - a bargain. And very tasty, too. My friends at a climbing weekend couldn't believe what I was telling them. All gone - so I had to buy another.
